Anti-inflammatory diets have become popular for good reason. Inflammation is at the root of a number of chronic diseases and limiting inflammation can be great for you. The Whey Protein Institute is all about leading a healthy life, so we looked at ways to add anti-inflammatories to a protein-packed smoothie!
Here’s a great recipe that we found:

This concoction tastes great and is incredibly easy to make. All you’ve got to do is toss the ingredients into a blender! Turmeric and ginger are proven anti-inflammatories. Combine them with fruits along with a high-quality whey protein isolate for a nutritious and filling smoothie!
